Nate and Lauren's First Dance at Silverwood Park's Great Hall

Nate and Lauren like to keep it casual, and that's exactly what they did for their simple September wedding at Silverwood Park.

The couple were wed in an evening ceremony followed by a reception of light snacks and a smorgasbord of delectable dessert bites for their guests. We served soft pretzel bites, mini whoopie pies, cream puffs, dark chocolate brownie bites, apple pie bars, and even a small strawberry vanilla wedding cake for the happy couple! 

The bride and groom selected Silverwood Park, one of Three Rivers Park District's wedding venues, for a multitude of reasons. "We chose Silverwood Park because it had the right balance of outdoorsy feel but was clean and nice. We also really appreciated Silverwood Park's commitment to the environment and the ability to compost and recycle for our special day, " said Lauren. 

Silverwood Park's Great Hall has so much natural beauty that Nate and Lauren only needed simple decorations and accents of color to create their perfect reception space.  The couple utilize the gorgeous grounds for their outdoor ceremony and the patio offered extra space for reception guests to enjoy.
